Hugh Jackman on the next The Wolverine movie

News Simon Brew 15 Nov 2013 - 07:05

There's going to be another standalone Wolverine movie, but Hugh Jackman will be taking his time...

It's been a week or so now since it was first revealed that 20th Century Fox was interested in pushing ahead with a follow-up to its summer hit, The Wolverine. As such, both director James Mangold and Hugh Jackman have been approached again over the film.

Chatting to EW, Jackman has confirmed this is the case, but also said that "I don't want to dive into another one until we have a compelling reason to do another one". Describing Wolverine as "kind of like a best friend to me", Jackman said that he didn't want to take him of the fans for granted.

"I think we’ve got a great opportunity to make something really cool, but it has to be great. That’s what we’re all working toward ... There are some really cool ideas that I’m dying to tell you, but that would be giving away a secret that is not even formed yet".

There's been no timescale mentioned on the film so far, but as we hear more, we will of course let you know.

I feel sorry for Hugh. He seems to genuinely care about the character and always has such high hopes and aspirations for each outing, but they never seem to get fully realised, and considering his age and the incredibly amount of work he puts in to maintain his physique, must rankle.

I feel sorry for him too... all that money... poor guy

I'd love to see an epic Wolverine trilogy or X-Men trilogy. A decent, well executed and quality set of films that stand together as an epic story of the character(s).

In my humble opinion, all of the X-Men/Wolverine films to date have missed the mark and not lived up to the source material.

Other X-Men characters are also available.

I have simple hopes and expectations. Put him in the Avengers and I'll be happy :P

Justice league vs marvel film

yeah because money buys you happiness!

OTHER X-Men characters?! Oh gosh, you're expecting a bit too much of Fox there I think!

The people who say "money doesn't buy happiness", doesn't have any!

It just feels like the studio keep thinking, "This time, we've nailed it!". And then when it gets released it gets average reviews so it's back to the drawing board.

"We'll do ONE more, this time we're gonna nail it!".

No. No you won't. People are bored of Wolverine now.

(Well, I am anyway)

LoL. amazing how they've made so many films that revolve around this one character. aren't there others.

I think the latest Wolverine film is more or less ideal, not sure they should have another go!

if you look as Maslow's hierarchy of needs you'll actually realise that Self-actualization makes you happy - money would be second from bottom under safety

Poor hugh endeed, i'm guessing that contract he signed is starting to rankle.

Latest wolverene movie was tired, cliche'd and boring....we need ninja's...i know lets do a movie in japan....sigh..hughs better than this, les miserable's proved that.

Hollywood have no balls anymore....grant morrisons "Zenith" is crying out for a big buget but hey we can have a new batman reboot, spiderman, cap america etc etc...long live the franchise... i think not.

yep, cause ultra hot, ultra famous multimillionaires hava such crappy lifes

Here is hoping that they have the guts to see through their vision to the end. A simple, personal revenge flick that keeps the actions tight, brutal, visceral, and relatable (as much as one could hope about an indestructible, hundred year old slaying machine can be!) is all I ask for.

Whatever happened to the idea of an 'X-Men Origins' movie for each X-Men character, with Wolverine being the first of many different ones?

I think all-men and wolverine films are amazing. but in the last wolverine film he lost his metal claws (I cant spell the type of metal) and there was a clip at the end of the film with magneito and charls so im really excited to see the next 1
